Maneuvers: Does this boost Acceleration as well? It's really, really annoying when a ship has to hit top speed to turn or suffer a penalty to turn in place.

I'm not positive without seeing the actual code, but it seems likely.

Logistics: Energy reserves? I thought that stat was mostly useless?

It is, but perhaps it doesn't have to be in the future. Heh, if I had my way, I'd make it increase warhead count and do a few other neat things. As it is, I think all it can regulate is shield recharge, but that could be made important if energy recharge wasn't made to be trivial.

I thought the energy stats were found to be magically linked to shield regen and weapon power. Or are the reserves a different stat than the other energy tags?

Couple of questions:

Also there should be the book at a library somewhere I'm guessing

Yeah, I know, but it's not first in the queue: I'm currently re-reading the Thrawn Trilogy, then I've got a couple more new ones I haven't even touched yet. Needless to say, I don't spend tons of time reading these days, since it usually ends up being a choice between that and modding.

Hmm, this is all pretty confusing, so I think I'm just going to have to read it... but what are our choices for his image? Isn't the starry one also a hologram? It's a choice between two holograms, no?

At least that hologram is more of an unknown apperance. We have to wait till a new book comes out that shows his face :good:

I'll change it if it's later determined to be wrong, but I'm not sure it is. Naturally, I have to favor Cronal in the flesh opposed to his holoimage.

First off sorry that it took me so long to find this quote...I kindof forgot about it till recently...

These quotes are all from Star Wars Luke Skywalker and the Shadows of Mindor hard cover version

This describes a regular pawn of his with the holomask page 88

Rather than armor, this individual wore dark, vaugely Vaderish clothing and a cape, and a curious hat, or headgear - a jet-black-version of the odd half-moon hat that the putative Lord Shadowspawn had worn in the holoprojections. This individual had the pale, frozen face and jet-black eyes of Shadowspawn, as well - exactly, in fact.

A pale frozen face doesn't look like the person on the picture, so even if it was Cronal's holo image, it wouldn't be accurate that picture

Page 132

...for the mind of this old, old man

and
Page 138

Of course, he had been thinking of clones, but Cronal's plans were more ambitious; if such a feat was possible, he determined that he would perform it-and not to a mere clone body, either. After all, his own body had never been strong, and his service to the Dark had eaten away what little strength he'd had until he could no longer stand-until he could no longer feed himself, or even breathe without the life-support functions built into his gravity chair.

Both of these proves that that would not be how his face looked like at that time, though I guess you could say that it was an old picture of him.


Then on page 139

It's what "Shadowspawn" would do, at any rate . . . but, sadly, it was not to be

This kindof proves that he didn't consider Shadowspawn as himself, so he probably used a different face for the holo image.


There's some of my proof.

Maybe some heroes with the Lambda as their transport could have 2 (highly upgraded) TIE Fighters following the Lambda, just like you see in RotJ when Darth Vader arrives at the Death Star II.

Also, could you add an Alpha Blue upgrade for Drayson?

The collection of upgrades listed on the website are by no means final... that's about all I can say at this point.

Judder Page!!! Yes!!!
Also, could you add an Alpha Blue upgrade for Drayson? And what about Etahn A'baht? Actually, there's lots of BFC fleet heroes I'd add.
It looks really good, though. Can't wait for it.
